Abstract (EN)The article reflects on the cases of Canada and the United States with a twofold theoretical and methodological purpose. Finding differences between countries that share the same economic and liberal culture and appear to coincide in the same type of capitalism, is convincing evidence that the countries’ economies are conditioned by the contexts and characteristics of political regimes, which gives politics preeminence over economy. Moreover, if these countries which are so similar diverge as a consequence of politics, this means that the economic effects of globalization and the application of economic policy recipes are different in every country and are determined by each one’s political context.
